The cover story is the context which unites the other components of a GBS; after identifying the target skills, the mission, and the focus, the designer must decide on the general context under which skills are learned and applied in the service of the mission. Because people use context to help them recall relevant skills, the cover story must closely match the situations in which the target skills are naturally employed. If, for example, a student is being trained to fill a particular job, the best cover story is the setting in which the job is conducted.
